Scary scene at UFC Fight Night 140 weigh-in.
UFC strawweight Cynthia Calvillo was visibly out of it today when she stepped on the scale for her official weigh-in ahead of Saturday’s Fight Night 140 in Argentina. Calvillo, who is set to face Brazilian Poliana Botelho in the first bout on the main card, was barely able to stand on the scale and nearly fainted as a result of her extreme weight cutting.
As seen in the video below, Calvillo didn’t make weight as she checked in at 118 for her 115-pound showdown against Botelho. Despite missing weight, Calvillo has still been cleared to compete on Saturday by the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission, according to CBS Sports. However, she will be fined 20% of her purse for the weigh-in miss.
